    I have been working at GN ReSound full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Human resources very proactive, and receptive to individual needs of employees. Tries very hard to mediate and establish a proactive repair plan for issue (s) at hand.

    Cons

    Employee moral is very low due to ongoing and pervasive petty and trivial treatment towards employees. Rampant favoritism abounds and negative verbal treatment from some supervisors unaddressed. Management will not address the concerns of thier employees. This ongoing dysfunction seems to catch on with newly promoted leads and supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating great employees like children at daycare. Stop patronizing and Listen and act on employee concerns..they are legit.

    Pros

    Work/family balance is important to this company. Coworkers are fantastic and with a few exceptions there is a lot of teamwork within and between different departments. The company is strong, growing, and makes excellent products.

    Cons

    Management doesn't tend to listen to suggestions or complaints made by employees. There seems to be quite a bit of distance between management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    You may want to keep in mind that those in direct contact with the customer are the ones who truly know what the customer wants. It would be worthwhile to listen to their suggestions a bit more closely.

    Pros

    Well compensated, very empowered to make decisions, extensive training. Great location, wonderful people to work with. The hours were normal business hours. After putting in 3 years the pto goes up which was generous.

    Cons

    politics. customer service department as a whole was looked down upon. No where to move up within the company. The position was very mundane, same thing everyday over and over, not very much variety.

    Advice to Management

    you get more out of employees with praise then with punishment. Sit with Customer Care at least once a year to find out what callers are calling in about.
